Are you new to Hashi?

First off, Google "Hashi" for some instructions on what it is and how to play it.

Here is a result of a quick search:

Rules of Hashiwokakero
 * Connect islands (the circles with numbers) with as many bridges as the number in the island.
 * There can be no more than two bridges between two islands.
 * Bridges cannot go across islands or other bridges.
 * The bridges will form a continuous link between all the islands.

Look at the puzzle.

Any '8' numbers have four 2-bridge sets going from them.

All '7' numbers have four bridge sets going from them, 3 with 2 bridges, 1 with 1 bridge.

All '5' or '6' which have their back to a wall (or a blank area) have to have 3 bridge sets going from them.  The bridge sets for the '6' will be of 2 bridges each.

If there is a 3 in a corner, it must have a 2 bridge sets going out from it

A '1' never goes to another '1'.


Do the obvious bridge sets and then look at it to see what changes are made for the remaining numbers.  Do you now have a '5' or a '6' with their back to a wall? 


I had to do this puzzle, to get the answer. Be aware of the rules of Hashi -- no group of numbers may be an island all by themselves.  That will help you to decide where to put bridges.  Also, I suggest marking the 'have to be' bridges with a colour that you keep and keep it, then go from there with a different colour.


Good luck! 


ps - If you get stuck, send me what you have. We'll play with it and see if you can get unstuck!  :reading:
